Donation made to the Post

 
At our March meeting, Commander Salvia received a generous donation on behalf of the Post from the Roger Althouse family. The Althouse family holds a golf outing in honor of their son Craig Althouse who lost his life in a snowmobile accident in 2015.

The family donates one-third of the charity proceeds to Milford’s American Veterans Post 2006 for their use in helping local veterans in need of assistance. “We want to do something to help veterans each year because Craig always had a high degree of respect for people who served our country,” said Roger. “He donated to veteran organizations and always found time to tell soldiers that he appreciated their service.” 

The third annual Craig Althouse golf outing will be held at Hartland Glenn on Saturday, July 15. If you would like to participate, visit Althouseamericanopen.com.

Pictured below (left to right) are Roger Althouse, Commander Salvia, and Jessie Warner, a close friend of Craig. 

Craig’s Mom, Deb, was also present at the meeting.
